Rash of thefts from vehicles in Mariemont By Lisa Wakeland

Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start of summer, but for some Mariemont residents it was an unpleasant one. The village had a rash of overnight thefts from vehicles during the holiday weekend, mostly on Settle and Homewood roads, on the west end of Mariemont. Three occurred sometime late Friday and early Saturday,

and two more happened Monday night into Tuesday morning, Police Chief Rick Hines said. In all cases, Hines said the vehicles were unlocked with items in plain view. According to two filed police reports, the suspects stole $5 in change from two different vehicles. Hines said not all incidents during Memorial Day weekend included a formal police report by residents. “The message is still, first and foremost, don’t leave valu-

ables, loose change or anything in your car,” he said. “Even if it’s a little change, they will get in the car and take it. They’re really looking for what they can take and easily conceal.” Mariemont police don’t have any suspects at this point, and it is not typically just one or two people responsible for these thefts, Hines said. “We’ve arrested people in the past for these type of crimes and almost every time (the

During Memorial Day weekend, there were a handful of thefts from vehicles in Mariemont. Police Chief Rick Hines said in all instances, the cars were unlocked and valuables left in plain view. LISA WAKELAND/THE

Mariemont Farmers Market returns for second year By Lisa Wakeland

The Mariemont Farmers Market is returning this summer, but on a new day. From 4 p.m. to 4 7 p.m. Wednesdays, starting June 4, the market will be open in the Mariemont Elementary parking lot, at the corner of West Street and Madisonville Road. Leah Geldbaugh, who helps organize the market, said overall, last year’s market went well, and she’s excited to bring it back for a second year. “I think most of the problems

we had last year were due to my inexperience, but I thought we did get a good reception and kept getting stronger,” she said. “We wanted to try again and improve on those mistakes so we have a more successful market. I think moving the day is going to be a big benefit to us.” This year’s farmers market includes close to 20 vendors bringing produce, meats, honey, breads and a variety of other items. Market favorites like Morning Sun Farm, Bering Bees, Nay Nay’s breads and baked goods and others are all coming back.

New vendors include My Artisano Foods, which will have cheeses, pastas and pre-made meals, Kona Ice and Two Chicks Who Cater. Geldbaugh said this year they’ll have spotlight vendors, who may only come to the market once or twice a month. They’re also trying to get more local people involved in the farmers market, whether it’s youth organizations or other community groups. “Last year was a big learning experience and it was over-

Residents in Columbia Tusculum are making a push to bring more bicyclists to the neighborhood. At a recent meeting, Community Council members voted to support three initiatives revolving around bikes. The first was to raise $3,500 for a new sculptural bike rack created with help from ArtWorks. Community Council President Christine Carli said there’s a matching grant to help bring the artistic, but functional bike rack to Columbia Tusculum. “We’re at the nexus of several bike trails with several more coming on line,” she said. “We’d put it in a common area for all of us to enjoy and use. We have several metal artists in the neighborhood and it could be something that supports the economy of our neighborhoods.” Carli said they could use some proceeds from the fall Home Tour to pay for the bike rack or try to raise money for it. Community Council Secretary Jonathan Hay also proposed asking the city to consider Columbia Tusculum for a station as the Cincy Bike Share program gets rolling. Cincy Bike Share will begin perhaps as soon as this summer, with 20 bike stations on corners across Downtown and Over-the-Rhine. The stations will hold 200 bikes to be shared and used as part of the city’s transporta-

tion system. “Lunken would be a great spot, but also somewhere in our own community,” Hay said. If a station does come to Columbia Tusculum, Carli said “it makes the neighborhood appealing” because residents could grab a bike and ride to work downtown or to a Cincinnati Reds game Finally, Hay also suggested they form a subcommittee to “engage businesses and others in the community” on how to encourage a bike path along the Oasis line, railroad tracks that run from downtown through the eastern part of Hamilton County, out to Anderson Township and into Clermont County. Part of that line could be See BIKES , Page A2 Vol. 34 No. 19 © 2014 The Community Press ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

Columbia Tusculum resident Cindy Matyi said she thinks it’d be “great for the community and for property values,” but was concerned if it’d be safe for people to use a trail next to active train tracks. “It’s not a done deal,” Carli said of the bike path proposal along the Oasis line, “but we should be actively engaged so we have a say in

Most, $1.1 million, will go to Cincy Bike Share, with $200,000 going to each of four trails: Wasson Way, the Oasis Corridor, Mill Creek and the Ohio River Trail West. City engineering officials are also planning a new 2.2-mile segment of the Ohio River Trail along Kellogg Avenue. It would connect the existing trail at Salem Road, near the Magrish Nature Preserve, to a piece at Sutton Road in Anderson Township, near Coney Island. Other pieces of the Ohio River Trail have been built, and once this link is finished, it would connect Five Mile Road at Kellogg Avenue in Anderson Township to Corbin Street in the East End.

Most of it comes right back to heroin.” Hines encouraged residents to immediately call 911 if they see something or someone suspicious and provide a description of the person and location. And while it can be beneficial to use social networking websites to alert neighbors, the police also need to know about incidents, Hines said. “A day or two after (something happens)

In the past few years the village as seen a significant drop in the number of thefts. Since 2010, when thefts peaked at 79, Mariemont has seen a steady decline each year to a recent low of 47 for 2013, according to police reports. Hines attributes that to a more visible police presence. Want more Mariemont news? Follow Lisa Wakeland on Twitter, @lisawakeland.

To illustrate this type of outreach as well as the principle of justice, the eighth-graders with the help of Girandola created the murals. Several students were selected for the mural

project, which was begun several months ago. Eighth-grader Madeline Hendrix, of Anderson Township, used a mountain to illustrate the idea of overcoming injustice. “It was very eye-opening,” she said about the project. “I’d never done anything like this before. “I think (the murals) all were very inspirational.”

Four St. Ursula students receive UES service awards Four St. Ursula Academy students have earned a 2014 Service Award by Ursuline Educational Services . They are Caroline Perry ’14 of Anderson Township, Darby Schwarz ’14 of Hyde Park, Katie Jira ’15 of Anderson Township and Sophia Settle ’15 of Hyde Park. St. Ursula Academy is a member of Ursuline Educational Services, a large network of 32 Ursuline-sponsored and affiliated schools and colleges in the United States and Canada. Each year, UES gives awards to students in its network of schools who have made significant contributions to the betterment of our world. “These students have served in a myriad of ways, benefitting so many worthwhile causes,” said Judy Wimberg, executive director of UES. “They exhibit strong leadership, courage, ingenuity and compassion. We can only imagine what they will continue to do as they mature “in wisdom, age, and grace.”

Caroline Perry

Perry earned her UES award by being a leader who exhibits dedication, organization, and perseverance through her work. She volunteers on the St. Ursula Academy Student Outreach Services Leadership Board and performs serPerry vice at St. Joseph’s Home, a residential program for individuals with severe disabilities. She has also served on the school’s Catholic Social Teaching Action Team, whose goal is to increase awareness of social justice issues such as fair trade products, homelessness and poverty. Most recently, Perry had the opportunity to travel to New Orleans to assist a family who was displaced by Hurricane Katrina. She, along with several other St. Ursula students, worked to rebuild a destroyed house so that a family could move out of the small apartment they had been living in for nearly eight years. “By the end of the week, our hard labor had transformed a skeleton into a place a family could call home. I experienced a transformation and realization that one person really can make a difference in the life of someone else,” Perry said.

Darby Schwarz

Schwarz is an unassuming leader who has grown in confidence over the past two years through her leadership as a service captain for the largest school-wide community service effort, the annual canned food drive. Behind her efforts, the students donated Schwarz 600 boxes of food for local food pantries this year. Darby realizes that this benefit is two-fold. To students of the St. Ursula community, she has raised awareness of the increase of hunger and home-

lessness locally. Secondly, with help from the SUA community, she has filled the shelves of five local food pantries. She knows that the service that she has experienced at St. Ursula will stay with her throughout her adult life. “Through my service, I have learned to be more involved, to be a gracious and aware person, and I am thankful that I have been given this opportunity to change,” Schwarz said.

Sophia Settle

Settle has volunteered during the Canned Food Drive and at the St. Joseph Home. She also has been involved by serving as a leader of the Student Outreach Services board. She has made an effort to increase awareness of local poverty in our community. Sophia is grateSettle ful for the opportunity to serve her community. “This service is important because it reminds me that one doesn’t have to go to another state or country to find someone in need of basic necessities such as food or shelter. These people are here, in our own community,” she said. Settle plans to continue her work with the Canned Food Drive during her senior year.

Katie Jira

Jira has been active in service learning throughout her three years at St. Ursula Academy. She is the chairperson of the mission collection program. For this program, she researches global issues, specifically issues affecting women and children, Jira and presents educational programs to advisory groups each month. She encourages fellow students to educate themselves on these issues and encourages them to give financially to these causes. To date, Jira’s efforts have raised more than $11,000 which has been donated to various agencies overseas. “By having mission collection at St. Ursula, my fellow students and I are exposed to problems such as child slavery, hunger, natural disasters, and lack of educational opportunities outside of the US. Even though we are students, we can still make a difference by advocating and donating,” she said when receiving the UES award. “These students are living testimony to the value of an Ursuline education,” Wimberg said. “Our gratitude and admiration goes out to their first teachers, their parents, and to the administrators, faculty and staff of their schools who serve as guides and inspiration to them. We are confident that St. Angela is pleased with their actions and their faith. All of us are witnesses to the marvels that these students have brought about by their selfless service.”

Clark boasts 1st state tennis player in Bak By Adam Turer

Mariemont High School senior Macko Saffin (15) fires for the second of his five goals in a 13-6 win against Seven Hills in the Division II regional semifinal lacrosse game May 28 at Mariemont. MARK D. MOTZ/THE COMMUNITY PRESS

Mariemont lacrosse leaves home on top, eyes state By Mark D. Motz

MARIEMONT — Leaving home is a lit-

tle easier when you get go out on top. Mariemont High School beat Seven Hills 13-6 in the Division II lacrosse regional semifinals, the last home game for the Warrior seniors who now finish their high school careers on the road. Mariemont head coach Steve Peterson admitted some coachspeak in saying said he and his team are taking things one game at a time, but maintained the goal and expectation is a second-straight state championship come June 7 near Columbus. “Our motto is we’ll show up anywhere and play anyone who comes to play against us,” Peterson said. “I’m proud of these seniors and happy they got to win at home for the last time. We’re definitely focused on the next game, but we’re keeping an eye on the ultimate goal of another state title.” Senior co-captain Macko Saffin led the Warriors with five goals against Seven Hills, while junior Chris Cascella added a hat trick with three. “This was a huge, huge deal for us,” Saffin said. “We played youth football on this field together in third grade, a lot of us, and it means a lot to go out with a win. They’re a team that definitely likes to swing the momentum, but we didn’t

really let that happen tonight.” Mariemont’s defense allowed just one Seven Hills goal from the 2:58 mark in the first period through the end of the third. By then the Warriors owned an insurmountable 11-3 lead. “They’ve got an incredible senior class and they had a great game plan and executed better than us,” said Seven Hills head coach Nick Greiwe. “We’ve grown every year each of the last three years at Seven Hills and we’re trying to keep growing. I’m proud of these kids.” Seven Hills scored first as Georgie Fovel put one in the back of the net less than 90 seconds into the game, but Saffin answered with 9:48 to play in the first period and scored again at the 5:42 mark to give the Warriors a lead it never gave up the rest of the way. Seven Hills tied the game at 2-2 with Jackson Callow’s goal, but gave up five straight Warrior scores to end the half, including Saffin’s third tally and goals by Cascella, Cal Fries, Connor Bortz and Kieran Phelan. Saffin scored unassisted in front of the net less than a minute into the second half and picked up his fifth goal at the 6:04 mark of the third period. Mariemont beat Indian Hill 11-4 for the regional title May 31 at Kings High School. The Warriors earned a spot in the state semifinals against Toledo St. Francis at 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 4, at

Sad farewell Seven Hills head coach Nick Greiwe’s brother - Stingers assistant coach Zac Greiwe - was a roommate of Turpin High School graduate and University of Cincinnati student Brogan Dulle who was found dead May 27 in a Clifton building next door to his apartment. Seven Hills dedicated its 13-11 openinground playoff win over Milford to Dulle and helped raise funds for his search. Greiwe said while team was sad about Dulle’s passing, it did not affect the squad on the field. Just the opposite, in fact. “It’s been a tough week or so and a tough couple of days,” Greiwe said. “But lacrosse has actually been our family sanctuary for our team. It’s been good for us just to be together and just focus on the games and get away from things on the outside for a little while.” Mariemont observed a moment of silence for Dulle before the regional semifinal game against Seven Hills May 28.

St. Xavier lacrosse jets off to state tournament By Tom Skeen

SPRINGFIELD TWP. — After beating Moeller High School 8-7 in suddendeath overtime in the Division I regional semifinals May 28, chants of “We want state” rang from the St. Xavier High School lacrosse locker room. Those chants rang true May 31 after the Bombers avenged a regular season loss to beat Mason High School 14-10 and advance to the state final four. “I’m really happy for this team,” coach Nate Sprong said. “These seniors put in a lot of work and now it’s paying off for them.” The Bombers are scheduled to play Dublin Jerome High School June 4 in the state semifinals at Centerville High School, but St. Xavier’s graduation ceremony is set for the same day, so the exact date of the game remains up in the air. Mason jumped to an early 3-0 and 5-2 lead before St. X ripped off five straight goals to take a 7-5 lead. The Comets tied it at nine, but the Bombers never relinquished the lead and outscored Mason 5-1 over the final 18 minutes. “They are a great transition team and got on us early,” Sprong said of the

Comets. “It took us a bit to settle down and play our game, but I told the guys relax, play your game and they did just that.” The Bombers are in search of their first Division I state title after winning the Division II title in 2000. Their shot at state nearly came to an end against the Crusaders in the regional semifinals. It was a rematch of the 2013 semis that saw Moeller come out on top, but this time was different. St. X controlled the first half taking a

3-2 lead into halftime, but the Crusaders stormed out of the half scoring two straight goals to steal the lead back 4-3. The Bombers answered immediately with three straight goals, but Moeller managed to fight back and tie the game at seven with 1:41 to play sending the game into overtime. Less than three minutes in, senior Jack Caudill of Hyde Park netted the game-winner sending the Bombers on to play the Comets. After failing to beat the Crusaders in over three years, St. X topped the Crusaders twice in 2014. “These games against Moeller are always great games,” Caudill said still smiling after scoring the game-winner. “Whether you win or lose, it’s always fun.” This senior class found themselves in the regional semifinals for the third consecutive season, after losing to the Comets in 2012 and Moeller last season. As seniors, falling short of state wasn’t an option. “I think earlier in the season we had the tendency to panic when we’d get down some goals and we kind of broke that trend (against Moeller),” Caudill said. “I think we’ve shown the rest of the lacrosse world we can play.”

HYDE PARK — A groundbreaking season by one individual could alter the course of an entire program’s future. Junior Chris Bak became the first studentathlete from Clark Montessori to qualify for the state tennis tournament. Hopefully, his success will create opportunities for Bak to practice against teammates in 2015. His accomplishments in 2014 are made even more remarkable by the fact he is the Clark tennis team. He trains at Harper’s Pointe with trainer Donnie Jackson and had the assistance this year of Clark tennis coach Dan Furlong. But, Bak was unable to practice against teammates or play many matches against high school competition during the regular season. Bak overcame these obstacles and advanced to the state tournament. “Chris has singlehandedly put tennis back on the map at Clark,” Cougars athletic director Aaron Zupka said. “With the success Chris has experienced in the tournament, there is a buzz around school.” At the Division II Southwest District meet on May 22 in Mason, Bak rallied for huge comebacks in the first and third sets of his opening match, then dominated his second match to qualify for state. He placed fourth in the district, after also placing fourth in the sectional tournament. “It was kind of unexpected,” said Bak. “I didn’t really expect to make it this far.” The hope around Clark is that Bak’s performance will encourage other young athletes to give tennis a try next spring. Zupka hired Furlong this season with the goal of jump-starting the Cougars tennis program. While the efforts to recruit more players to come out fell short, Bak’s talent still gave the Cougars a chance to make some noise in the postseason. He was the de facto No. 1 player for Clark, but has enough ability to be the No. 1 player in many varsity lineups. “He is just a great kid, does everything the right way, and does not make excuses,” Zupka said. “He has represented Clark well and we are all very proud of him.” The significance of his achievement had not yet fully sunk in as he prepared for his opening match at the state tournament in Columbus on May 30. Bak lost in straight sets to Poland Seminary’s Garrett Gardner, but will now have time to appreciate what this season means not just to him, but to the whole Cougars athletic department. “Being the first one to make it (to state) really means a lot to me,” Bak said. “Once the tournament’s over, I’ll probably realize the history part of it even more.” Bak’s ability to push himself without the additional motivation of any teammates is a testament to his focus and determination. “I think he realized that most kids dream about having the opportunity to make it to state in any sport,” Zupka said. “Now he actually gets to live this dream and make the most of it.” In the offseason, Bak will shift his focus to rowing for the Clermont Crew and continuing to work toward completing his Eagle Scout project.

Moeller’s speed, pitching propel them to state By Scott Springer

CORRYVILLE — The big, blue Moeller High School fire truck that shows up at major Crusader sporting events will be making yet another appearance at Huntington Park in Columbus. Armed with their 11th straight district title after beating Centerville, coach Tim Held’s crew got a shutout from Zach Logue to dispatch Beavercreek May 30 at the University of Cincinnati’s Marge Schott Field. That set up the Greater Catholic League/Greater Miami Conference showdown with Mason the next evening. The Crusaders appeared to be in the driver’s seat with a 3-1 lead in the bottom of the seventh and sophomore lefty Nick Bennett chewing up Comets. However, Mason managed to get runners to second and third with two outs and cleanup hitter Andy Marzheuser up. What looked like a gameending grounder to Moeller’s Riley Mahan took a strange hop and suddenly, the game was tied. The next hitter, Rodney Hutchison, singled to left and pinch-runner Logan Williams tried to tie it Pete Rose/ Ray Fosse-style. Moeller’s Bailey Montoya stood ground and Williams was ejected for bumping the catcher. The game stayed knotted at 3 until the 9th when Moeller loaded the bases and Hutchison hit junior Joe Vranesic with a pitch to make it 4-3. The

Moeller players celebrate after winning the regional championship 4-3 in nine innings over Mason, Saturday, May. 31.TONY TRIBBLE/FOR THE COMMUNITY PRESS

Moeller’s Joe Vranesic is hit by Mason pitcher Rodney Hutchison in the top of the ninth inning to score the go-ahead run in the regional championship at UC May 31.TONY TRIBBLE/FOR THE COMMUNITY PRESS

Comets got out of the inning without further damage, but went1-2-3 against Vranesic as the Crusaders prevailed. “Mason scored those runs so fast,” Held said. “There wasn’t time to get nervous. When they had the runner on second and got the base hit to left field, I was nervous. Kyle Butz comes up and throws a strike at home. That was a

huge play.” Bennett picked up the win with four innings of four-hit relief and junior Vranesic got the save. Nick Voss, starting on the field he’ll be pitching at next season, went four innings allowing just three hits and a run. Held was impressed with the composure of his pitchers. “Playing that regular season gets them ready for moments like these,” Held said. Moeller now moves on to play Massillon Jackson at 1 p.m., Friday, June 6, at Huntington Park. Jackson’s record is 24-5 and Moeller is 24-4. They’ve done it often with speed and pitching. The offense against Mason left Held with some promise. “Everybody’s expecting us to score 10 runs,” Held said. “People look at our numbers and say we’re not the same ol’ Moeller. I think banging out 10 hits against those three

pitchers, I think it’s all there.” Pitching plans had not yet been decided at presstime, but it’s a safe bet you’ll see University of Kentuckybound Zach Logue on the bump in Columbus. Like many of the Crusaders, he’s now a postseason veteran of the big stage. “We know when Zach’s on the mound he’s going to keep the run count low against us,” Held said. “If we can score three or four, we feel pretty confident.” By tradition, the Crusaders collect a bottle of dirt at each game and take it to the next. With a victory, they empty it and refill it with the dirt of their last field. Not to be forgotten, Moeller’s Nick Bennett snuck on Marge Schott Stadium’s mound some 30 minutes after the regional win and stuffed some UC dirt into his back pocket. The next bottle awaits.

HYDE PARK — Darnell Parker has been named the next boys basketball coach at Clark Montessori High School, according to Athletic Director Aaron Zupka.

CH@TROOM May 29 question Where is the best park in the area and why do you think it’s at the top of the list?

“There are so many great parks in Colerain and Green townships. “I have not been to all but my favorite is the updated Colerain Park on Poole Road. There is a quality play ground area with many swings etc. There are several nice-sized, rentable covered shelters and some great ball fields. “The shaded walking path is great for joggers and walkers. The concerts in the large outdoor amphitheater are a great summer time venue. “Plus being next to the middle school additional parking is abundant. They have really fixed this park up in the last 10 years or so and keep it clean. I am surprised more residents do not take advantage of this great green space. “Go Figure!”

Do your share for cleaner air this summer Summer weather is quickly approaching, and that brings the potential for a smog alert. A Smog Alert is issued the day before the Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency expects to see levels of air pollution that are unhealthy for sensitive groups such as children, the elderly and people with asthma, bronchitis and other respiratory problems. Smog is a term used to describe air pollution, with the two primary pollutants being ground-level ozone or particulate matter. While a smog alert is possible any time of Megan year, our region typiHummel COMMUNITY PRESS cally has higher ozone levels in the summerGUEST COLUMNIST time because it is formed as a chemical reaction in the presence of sunlight and heat.

Being a patriot is more than just saying so As Memorial Day weekend closed, I took some time to reflect on the many signs of patriotism that were evident and others, which persist year round. My father, who served in the Royal Marines and Home Guard in the UK during World War II and just afterwards, was always impressed with the many signs of patriotism that we display in America. The flags on public buildings and on homes, the many memorials in public Bruce Healey COMMUNITY PRESS places for those who served, and who made GUEST COLUMNIST the ultimate sacrifice. It is, he felt, and I agree, a healthy way for the people to remember that sacrifices were made to make this country great, and a way to make sure those who served know that the country is grateful enough to use some of its treasure to do so. Such public signs of patriotism also exist in the UK. However, Britain was bombed and nearly starved. In the

1970s when I went to boarding school in Scotland, the train passed through an old industrial and working class area which was bombed to oblivion by the Germans in World War II. Bombed apartment buildings still stood in mute testimony to the horrors of war inflicted upon civilians and their livelihoods. No, the people of nearby Glasgow do not need a lot of reminding about sacrifice, pain and patriotism. The civilians lived it and patriotic is different look over there. Not better nor worse, just different. All patriots, however, share a love for their country and recognition that no country is perfect, but theirs is worth their blood, sweat and tears, willingly given. Such thoughts of real patriotism, and real suffering for a greater cause, brought to mind a recent phenomenon which all decent citizens should decry and publicly refute: the use of the word “patriot” to legitimize anything most citizens would find distasteful. Let me illustrate. You don’t like paying your taxes (and who does?)? Call yourself a “patri-

ot,” form a group with mythical links to a historically questionable event and presto! You are “legitimizing” your dislike and disrespect of legitimate laws designed to fund everything from defense to Social Security. As a legislator, you feel the need to curtail civil liberties in the fight against terrorism? No problem! Call the law taking some of these away “The Patriot Act” (and who could vote against that?) and presto! You are now free to listen to my phone calls and read my mail. Are you a racially biased bigot who takes the law into their own hands and wants everyone in America to look just like you? Got it! Call yourself a “patriot” link yourself to the Minute Men of the War of Independence (true patriots) and now your little hate fest on the border is wrapped in our flag – which should outrage us. So next time you see the word “patriot” used to describe anything, ask yourself: is that thing/person/law truly patriotic? Bruce Healey is a resident of Indian Hill.

Fight abuse by giving kids power GIve kids the power! (Are you crazy?) Well, yes, at first blush that sounds crazy. But, let me explain. Almost every day we read in the paper or hear a news story about child abuse, bullying, sometimes the death of a child and we shudder. We say, “Oh wow. That’s awful.” We feel genuinely sad. Then – nothing. Nothing! We go on with our Sandy Owings day. With our lives. Until the next week Rabe COMMUNITY PRESS when something is in the news again. GUEST COLUMNIST Really? Oh my gosh - I can hardly stand it. So - what to do? Mother Theresa said - “You can’t do everything. But you can do one thing”. My one thing? – Preventing child abuse. Abuse: Physical. Sexual. Verbal. Bullying. These are strong words. What they all have in common is the misuse of power. The power of one human over another.

In our society it is inherently the case that adults have “power” over children. So when adults are good this is a wonderful thing. But when the adult is the the perpetrator – we have a problem. A huge problem. What I have learned is that when children are with adults that are making bad choices, the best thing we can do is give a child knowledge; which in turn helps them to have power. Power to get help and stand up to the abusing adult. Many studies show that much of this behavior is cyclical - the longer we allow this to continue the problem becomes exponential. So I say, let’s give kids knowledge. Let’s give kids power. Let’s be the generation that stops these horrific crimes. Or at least try. But how? How do we reach these kids – when this is generally done behind closed doors. And, when the “trusted” adult says, “Don’t tell. It’s a secret.” Enter Council On Child Abuse. We have trained, extremely caring prevention specialists that provide classroom presentations about child abuse and peer abuse in K- 12 schools throughout the Greater Cincinnati/ Northern Kentucky area. Children learn abuse prevention and

personal safety strategies and have opportunities to disclose current or previous abuse, bullying and related problems. The information reported by the students results in getting help and keeping children safe. This is where giving knowledge to children is crucial. With knowledge children have power and now the tools to get help. Abuse knows no boundaries. It cuts across all socio-economic, race and cultural backgrounds. No one is immune! Now is a great time to get involved. Let’s help the children - the ones with no voice. No advocate. No choices. Give children power? Oh, yes, I say, give them the power! Power to stand up to the adults abusing them. How can you help? Glad you asked! Call COCA to find out how you can get involved; 513-936-8009, or visit our web site:

Self-described patriots are deadbeat, welfare ranchers I grew up on a small farm one mile north of Fosters, along the Little Miami River. We raised cattle, sometimes having as many as 200 head to feed. So we grew grasses to make hay and part of our work involved cutting, raking, baling, loading wagons before hauling Alan Sanders to the barn and stacking the bales. COMMUNITY PRESS GUEST I was given the COLUMNIST honor of feeding these cattle twice a day, in the morning and early evening. I loved it. Have you ever heard the sound of a herd of cattle munching hay together? We also grew corn and soybeans for feed. Lastly, we rented another 80 acres to pasture our animals. So we paid for feed either through our sweat



A publication of

equity or with cash. We got no free feed, unlike some ranchers in the west. So our competition had a leg up on us getting the benefit of free or low cost feed and the ability to run roughshod over the environment while we, as owners of our property were duty bound to act as good stewards of the land. Our last year was 1966. We had to sell. Grandpa had retired from his day job and we just weren’t making any money raising beef. Have you ever had your whole way of life sold out from under you? Nowadays, we have a different kind of cattleman. Like Cliven Bundy, who recently led a standoff against federal officials. Some calls them the sagebrush rebellion. Others call them deadbeats and welfare ranchers. They call themselves patriots. We never thought of ourselves in that way. We were just plain folks,

working the land and caring for our critters. We never hurt anyone. We never threatened anyone. We never aimed our weapons on anyone. I know a few people who I would call patriots, even heroes. Not one would speak of themselves in such terms. I witnessed a news video recently of a self-proclaimed patriot with a scoped gun high above a crowd of people in Nevada and aiming at government employees who worked for the Bureau of Land Management. Like farmers everywhere there were times when we were opposed to government policy. But to be prepared to take a person’s life in such an event was unthinkable to us. Real patriots don’t act that way! Alan Sanders is chief strategist, Earth Alert, and a resident of Loveland.

Become a grill master with these basics

Buona Terra, Holtman’s partner for a new treat

Gosh, how time flies. Seems like it was just yesterday when my boys were little and my husband, Frank, answered this way when I asked him what he Rita wanted for Heikenfeld Father’s Day. RITA’S KITCHEN “No presents, just something from the grill and some peace and quiet.” I have to laugh when I recall how the food was never a problem, but the peace and quiet sure was. Dad’s day is a good time to celebrate all the dads in your life, both ones you are related to and those you are not. And if you’re nervous about feeding him a feast from the grill, here are some basics to make you a grill master!

Grilling basics 101:

Clean that grill: A long handled, stiff brush works well. Use it twice: when grate is preheated but before the food goes on and again after you’re done cooking, while it’s still hot. Oiling the grate: Best to do when grill is hot. Make a small pad out of a paper towel and dip it into oil, then rub it with long handled tongs over bars

of grate. This also helps clean off debris. If you want to spray, take grate off grill away from the fire. Never spray oil onto grate over the fire. Wood chips: these add distinctive flavors, and should be soaked in water about 30 minutes before grilling. I like to soak chips in wine and herbs. Just drain them well and wrap in a foil packet. Poke holes in top only and place among the coals or rocks. Have on hand: Thick grill gloves, oven mitts or potholders, apron and towels. Salt it down! A box of coarse salt is a must to have for sprinkling over a grease fire. Don’t know a rub from a mop? Rub: a “dry” marinade – a mixture of dried seasonings rubbed directly onto surface of meat. Adds intense flavor and coating forms a seal. Let rubbed meats stand for 30 minutes before cooking to allow seasonings to penetrate. Mop: this comes from the tool used to dab sauce on barbecued meats. It looks just like a little cotton “mop” on the end and is used instead of a brush. Marinade: meats are put into seasoned liquids, which enhance flavor and tenderize. Marinades

Two local businesses are teaming up to offer a new treat this summer: a gelato doughnut sandwich. Holtman’s Donuts, which has stores in Over-the-Rhine, Loveland and Williamsburg, is working with Buona Terra in Mt. Lookout Square for a one-day only special. “Our goal was to partner to come up with one of the most delicious treats of 2014,” said Eric Roeder, one of the Buona Terra owners. ”Both of our businesses have so much passion for our treats, as well as a keen attention to quality, so we knew it would be awesome to come together for a col-

moisten surface of meat so it doesn’t dry out over hot coals. Glaze: a thin type of sauce that is usually glossy when brushed on foods, sometimes during the last five minutes of grilling, and the glaze remains glossy after cooking.

Grilled steak with garlic and thyme rub What cut to use? Flat iron is part of the chuck so it has great beefy flavor and is almost as tender as tenderloin. Originally, skirt steak was cut to be used in fajitas and has a bit more fat than the hanger or flank. Flank works well here too. My favorites are flat iron and flank. Serve with a side of grilled thick sliced potatoes. For each steak (1-1/2 pounds approx.) Combine with enough olive oil to make a pasty rub: 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves 2 teaspoons garlic 1/2 teaspoon pepper and 1 teaspoon salt For sprinkling on immediately after grilling:

Romano cheese and chopped parsley Score steak on both sides. Rub seasoning onto steak on both sides. Let sit about 30 minutes. Place on hot grill and grill until medium rare to medium, turning once. Remove and sprinkle with cheese. Let rest, tented, 5 minutes or so and slice thinly against grain.

Chipotle butter

Mix together and then roll into a log and place in frig or freezer. This is so delicious on top of a plain grilled steak. 1/2 cup unsalted butter, completely softened Canned chipotle chilies in adobo, stemmed, seeded and minced - to taste 2 tablespoons lime juice Scant teaspoon ground cumin Salt to taste.

Through her leadership, participation increased in a student-run organization devoted to supporting school children in Uganda. She is also a leader in Night for the Fight, an event for pediatric cancer, which has raised its dollar goal and also the number of schools involved. She recognizes that one person can “make an impact in the world.” Senior class winner is Meredith Bailey of Walnut Hills High School, who collected more than 8,000 pairs of shoes delivered to six different charities, including one in Africa. She started with the goal of reducing landfills, arranging to have old shoes shredded and made into outdoor playground mats. She later donated shoes to local school children of all ages, ranging from snow boots to prom footwear. Her guidance counselor calls her “the epitome of dedication, compassion, intelligence and kindness.” Other junior finalists: » Julia Engel of Wyoming H.S., who focuses on education and health causes, including help for addicts; » Allison Flanigan of Glen Este High School, an accomplished fund-raiser for children’s causes; » Nancy Nzobigeza of Mother of Mercy High School, who aids immigrants from Burundi; and » Kila Tripp of Ursu-

Turn your associate degree into a bachelor’s– just like Adrienne Larson did. Thirty years after earning her associate degree, Adrienne wanted more from her career. Through the new Applied Administration program at UC Blue Ash College*, she was able to transfer all of her credits toward a bachelor’s degree from UC. The flexible class schedule and convenient location made it possible for her to earn her bachelor’s while continuing to work. Now Adrienne’s earning potential is unlimited as she prepares for the next phase in her career. Learn more at * Program also available at UC Clermont College.

Members and guests of the Mariemont Chapter DAR were treated to financial information directed toward women and women’s needs at a recent meeting. Member Liz Niehaus, a Certified Financial Planner professional, and her colleague Heather J. Swob, also a CFT professional and wealth advisor, presented the “Five Things Every Woman Needs to Know About Her Finances.” Education in Women’s Issues is an important part of the DAR mission and the program highlighted the fact that women need to be financially savvy and knowledgeable as, among other things, women live longer than men. Women, 65 and older, are three times as likely as men of the same age to be widowed and, “as women, we need to be able to continue to live meaningful, enriching lives in light of that loss and without burdening future generations.” Both presenters are part of the Truepoint Wealth Counsel and presented very specific information women need to know in order to become empowered.

A strong point was made that both parties in a relationship need to be knowledgeable about the following in order to maintain healthy wealth management in the marriage or as a single person: » “What do I have and how do I access it?” » “Get acquainted with your tax return.” » “Insurance policies that make sense for you.” » “Estate documents: Ensuring your wishes are known.” » “Communication and support systems are essential.” Information was also presented regarding the importance of being financially and legally savvy regarding single, adult children, specifically in relation to power of attorney documents and wills. A lively conversation ensured and each attendee took home a meaningful and practical guide which is very helpful to women but also to anyone interested in financial literacy.

Recycling help is available At summer events like community and church festivals, it is common to see overflowing trash cans and can be difficult to find recycling containers for bottles and cans. However, the Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste District provides free recycling containers for events to recycle bottles, cans and paper. The containers are de-

signed specifically for event recycling–they are highly visible and easily recognizable as a recycling container. The district provides the containers and plastic liners for free; the event is responsible for collecting and recycling the material. To request containers, call 513-946-7737 or visit
